Lenovo outs 1080p Multi-Touch Monitor

By | March 15th, 2010

Lenovo has announced three new monitors including L246x-Wide that has multitouch support. The model L2461x is 23.6 inch wide screen monitor having a resolution of 1920×1080 (1080p) pixels. The monitor is equipped with latest technical specs but I don’t think you’ll like to use 8 kg screen in you lap. Touch screen and especially multitouch screen works best if you hold them close by. You need to have it in your arms to fully utilize the touchscreen capabilities otherwise there’s no use of purchasing such an expensive monitor. I don’t think that the guy/girl in the image below is comfortable with it:
